Blah Blah Steroids

And now for the obligatory Barry Bonds indictment post.


I'm almost to the point of not even wanting to write about Barry anymore. I don't watch daytime dramas like the Young and the Restless, so his situation doesn't even spark the slightest bit of excitement in me... but here we go anyhow.

With that deer-in-the-headlights look on his face, Bonds must have a feeling of impending doom. And he has to be sick of wearing suits by now. His 2003 grand jury testimony, which is now unsealed and available to the public, apparently reveals convincing evidence of steroid use.

In the transcript, Bonds denies having ever taken steroids or human growth hormone, which prosecutors demand are flat-out lies. However, in other parts of Bonds’ testimony, he said he became suspicious of some of the creams and oils Greg Anderson had given to him once his former trainer's house was raided.

[excerpts]

Prosecutors originally accused Bonds of fibbing 19 different times during his grand jury appearance, charging him with four counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice. However, a judge ordered prosecutors to amend Bonds’ indictment so that each of the five counts against him don’t cite the statements that prosecutors say are untrue. They are expected to decide whether to seek a new indictment before Bonds’ next court date March 21st.

This is why we call it "Blah Blah Steroids."

I hope he is banished from baseball for the rest of his life, just like Pete Rose.
